Caffé Nero is a popular coffee house chain located throughout Europe and the UK.

They have recently entered the American market with the opening of a few coffee shops in Boston, MA.

Caffé Nero's caffeine content is based on the number of espresso shots used in the beverage.

According to Nero's customer service, a single shot of their espresso contains 40mg of caffeine +/- 10mg. This is about half of the caffeine typically found in a shot of espresso.

Caffeine in Various Caffé Nero Coffees

Coffee Beverage Size Caffeine
Espresso 1 shot 40mg
Espresso Macchiato ? 40mg
Espresso Con Panna ? 80mg
Cappuccino Regular 80mg
Caffé Latte Regular 80mg
Americano Regular 80mg
Mocha Regular 90mg*
Frappe Latte Regular 80mg
Iced Latte Regular 80mg
Mocha Frappe Latte Regular 90mg*

* These amounts are approximate based on the amount of cocoa powder used.

Grande sized beverages have the same caffeine content, except for Nero's Grande Americano, which has 3 shots delivering 120mg of caffeine.

Caffé Nero has a wide variety of flavors available as well, but the caffeine is determined by the number of espresso shots used as well as any chocolate present in the beverage, so expect flavored versions of the drinks above to have the same caffeine content. 

All of their coffees could be 10mg less or 10mg greater than the amounts listed in the table above.

It will be interesting to see how Caffé Nero competes in the USA especially since Starbucks (what most in the USA would be used to) contains about double the caffeine.
